Water Activities


If you have tried surfing before, you should take the thrill to a whole new level with a hydrofoil. The board is designed so that the foil under the board uses kinetic energy to lift you off the water. Yes, you read it right! It will make you feel as if you are flying on the water.

Tip: The same board can also be used for windsurfing and wakeboarding. So, it would be best if you try these as well.
